Build a Business That People Will Pay You Millions of Dollars to Own
The Entrepreneur’s Dream
When you started planning your new business venture you probably dreamed of building a highly successful company. One that had the best systems, incredible employees and profits so reliable, you’d soon have the freedom to spend your valuable time on the more important things in life.
Then you actually had the guts to start and it’s been an uphill climb since day one. You may have cash flow issues, or your employees can’t seem to do anything without you. There’s an infinite stream of demands that pulls you in all directions. Or you spend so much time trying to generate more business you barely have a moment to yourself. Worst of all, you may be starting to doubt if your dream will ever come true.
Here’s the good news. Not only is your dream totally attainable, but you can take the first steps right now.
An Entrepreneur. Just like you.
My name is Tom Bershad and for the past 35 years, I’ve been an entrepreneur just like you. I have built, purchased and sold eight different businesses. In 2012 I sold my oldest and largest business to Private Equity, ensuring that my family and I will be well taken care of, even if I never worked again.
Not only have I been in your shoes, I’ve already failed multiple times and made a lot of the most common mistakes. And I’ve learned from them. I’ve pursued many different business models, been involved with various kinds of partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, expanded to multiple locations, created joint ventures, worked with virtual businesses and sales programs and more. In the end, I learned how to focus and bring correct financial and operational discipline to the running of my firm.
Since that time, I have created real value and wealth for my family and closest associates. There is a method for doing this correctly, and it’s something you must learn. I have never met anyone who knew this instinctively. I learned it from my Mentors and Consultants. Now I am teaching it to people like you.
How did I do it? Well, for one thing, I knew when to ask for help from the right people.
The Key to a Valuable Business.
If you’re like most founders and entrepreneurs you likely take great pride in the knowledge that your contribution is the greatest and has the most impact on day-to-day sales or operations. While this is admirable it can actually lower the potential value of your business when it comes time to sell or when you want to have more freedom from the day-to-day.
What most business founders don’t realize is that being a completely indispensable owner-operator, deeply involved in every aspect of the business is not a positive trait for a growth company or high-market-value business.
In fact, the more an owner is involved in the day-to-day, the less it’s likely the business will grow beyond an early stage company. In fact most business owners operate in what I call, “Perpetual Startup” or the “Reaction–Distraction Cycle”.
Neither of these is a great place to be long term. However, I know people who operate this way for decades. In effect, unless you are present, things fall apart. Imagine what happens if you fall ill, or if you have to take time off for family issues. Your business could be lost without you.
In order to attain deep, growing, lasting value, a business has to be able to run, even when you’re not there.
